at about 10:00 eastern. up next, we will take you to the 50 minute news conference, president obama talking to the news reporters in the press room. president obama: hello, everybody. hello. good afternoon -- or good morning, everybody. i am here to answer questions in honor of ed henry, as he wraps up his tenure as president of the white house correspondents' association. ed, because of that, you get the first question. congratulations. >> thank you, sir. i really appreciate that. and i hope we can go back to business and being mad at each other in a little bit. president obama: i'm not mad at you. >> ok. thank you. i appreciate it. president obama: you may be mad at me. [laughter] >> i'm not. [laughter] a couple questions on national security. on syria, you said that the red line was not just about chemical weapons being used but being spread, and it was a game changer, seemed cut and dry. and now your administration seems to be suggesting that line is not clear. do you risk u.s. credibility if you don't take military action? and then on benghazi, there are some survivors of that terror
. >> david, let's talk about obama's wars and his use of modern warfare on the cyber wars as you mentioned, and then the drone wars. as we've discussed, these wars are prosecuted without congressional say-so. are largely unaccountable. rules of engagement have really yet to be codfide on both fronts. they are targeted but there is serious collateral damage in the case of drones, obviously innocent civilians have been killed. as you point out, that was sort of unintentionally replicated around the world, that virus. i wonder if we can take a historical look for a second. obama might be a nobel peace prize winner for his aversion to traditional warfare but he has been a pioneer commando in terms of modern warfare. how do you think the longview of history will parcel out those two opposing ends of the psalm coin? >> you know, it is a great question. as i reported on confront and conceal, i got to a point where i reached an american official, worked for president bush, worked for president obama, worked with them quite closely, and this official said to me, you know, what was surprising about
it works for those guys but not barack obama. that astounds me. but let's talk about the immigration idea what he has been saying on immigration. we know how it plays in congress. how is it playing in texas? >> um, as you know, as a lot of people know, one of rick santorum's problems besides the fact that he had foot-in-mouth disease in the last campaign, was that he was relatively soft from the point of view from the right, his own party on immigration. he was a relatively moderate on immigration. so was george bush. you look at john mccain, who has had a variety of positions over the years but effectively is a nuanced and informed position on immigration. you get these people along the border and many folks along the border, not everybody but many political folks along the border in states like texas understand that the immigration issue is much more difficult and nuanced. there are family connections. there are economic connections. so you have in most cases not in the case of cruz, but in the case of many of these candidates the greater recognition of the value of immigration. withexc
re-talking about? are we talking about the barack obama that his -- the administration raised the fee for citizenship application to get back down again? don't get me started. i can go low sides on this because these politicians, that's my point, have moved them play this game like checkers or chess when it suits their interest in suits their politics. it's not just john mccain. >> i will tell what barack obama we are talking about. we are talking about the president obama that just won a re-election with 71% of the latino vote and understands there is a dead and we will not let him off the puck. i think it's a president obama who no longer has realm and manual as a chief of staff telling him it's too politically costly for you to do this in your first term. i think the president barack obama who wants a legacy and understand that this can be a major point for his legacy. to the point where he is stepping back. the question you asked antonio, if president obama had done what he said he was going to do and luis knows this and crossed his own legislation on congress to say here is my bi
. laffer, good to have you with us. things are coming up. roses around here and everybody is talking, they are so dour and concerned. what is going on? >> you have a slow recovery. that is there. really the thing i think is wonderful, obama has lost his ability to materially effect legislation and bad policies. we have to live with his policies but i'm looking forward 2014, 2016 and seeing a bright future for the u.s.. >> lou: that is fascinating perspective. do you believe -- >> yeah. all his big stuff occurred when he was the house and senate. now, he doesn't have that same power. frankly i don't think he can push through bad legislation like he used to. that is good sign for the country. sooner or later we're going to get rid of obamacare almost entirely. its terrible program. it's hurting the economy. that is why we have a slow growth and recovery. once that is gone you will see a boom in this economy like never before. >> lou: we'll take a look at a revealing poll in the next segment. it's kaiser came out with a new poll on obamacare. it's amazing. it's confident with what would
'll cover it. by the way, president obama is in mexico right now talking to the president of mexico. he will have a press conference in a minute. melissa: breaking news right now. a joint news conference between president obama and mexico's president enrique knee the to, is he edge a three-day trip to mexico. both president obama and mexico's president are scheduled to make statements. then they will take questions from the press. we'll take you there live just as soon as the question and answer portion starts. they tend to make news when they do that. so we don't want you to miss it. we'll keep an eye on it. and bring it to you when it happens. in the meantime it is all about jobs. tomorrow we find out how many were added in april. the stakes couldn't be any higher after march's grim report. many are bracing for the worst with the wave of weak economic data coming out this week. in a new op-ed, wyoming senator john barrasso says one of the biggest things blocking job growth is obamacare. the senator joins me now. welcome back to the show. >> thanks for having me, melissa. melissa: it w
, say something? >> i think it's part of what jim was talking about which is playing into president obama's narrative of the middle east. we don't have to worry. problem solved. war in afghanistan is over. no problem here because i got osama bin laden. guess what? radical islam still exists and there are people that pose a threat to this country this was a terrible wake-up call america again. >> and they made an excuse for terrorism like this piece that appeared on front page of "time magazine", did boxing damage play a role in the boston bombing, suggesting that tamerlan tsarnaev's brain may have been traumatized during the year he boxed. that may have explained what he decided to do in that. >> i happen to be a person who is actually passion putting people under an mri machine and find out what happened. i understand. what is really interesting as we go forward and not any media stories about that, what do the hippo logs going to do with some of this information that perhaps that is dangerous. that is whole area to be explored. >> jon: then there was tom brokow on meet the press.
of culture around obama. i think we cannot not talk about that either. people want to be a part of that, whether they agree with his politics or disagree, this is a really popular president. he is the toast of the town in d.c. so to speak and people no matter what side of the aisle they're on they want to be part of the glitz and glamour that comes with this celebrity president. they want to take part of it whether they agree or not. >> cenk: we got to leave it there, but it comes with a price. that's the problem. if you cross the politicians then you're not going to get invited to the parties any more. they never cross the politicians. they never tell the truth that's why you don't trust the media. what are we doing about jobs. that's what people actually care about. since president obama has been re-elected, republicans and democrats, nothing about jobs. nothing. all right, when we come back we're talking about how to fix that system. how to get money out of politics and exactly to brian's point about what people are dissatisfied with, and what republicans and democrats agree on in th
, independent, tough business woman. if you notice one last point, i push back on the obama budget, so let's talk about independent reach across the aisles and being reasonable. i told you no one tells me what to do. i am an independent business woman and i will reach across the aisles. [ applause ] >> dick, i thought she might reach across the debate stage and knock one on sanford's chin there. she was not pulling any punches, not tying herself to nancy pelosi. elizabeth colbert busch was channeling the fighting spirit of nancy pelosi. what did you make of that? >> i think it is fascinating to me. mark sanford, i counted, mentioned nancy pelosi's name 16 times tonight. he's clearly obsessed with the wrong woman, again. this guy is just amazing because he thinks the public is so stupid, they don't understand. he wants to talk about nancy pelosi, he wants to talk about anything about his record as governor, his record with the argentina trail. huge impact is the deepening of the charleston port, which sanford voted against any federal funding for that when he was in congress before, voted a
. is america still the lure it once was? president obama arriving in mexico city to talk immigration reform tonight, as we confirm a surprising number -- how many undocumented immigrants in america have decided to return to mexico. abc's white house correspondent, jim avila, in mexico. >> reporter: footsteps echo through a nearly empty, northern mexico village. expensive homes bolted shut. block after block of shuttered doors in el cargadero, their absentee owners working hundreds of miles away. so where is everybody? >> mostly they're in california. i would say 2/3 of the people from here, they reside in southern california. >> reporter: but now many mexicans, who desperately crossed the northern border for work, are coming home, chased away, not by the fear of deportation, but by u.s. unemployment. >> when the economy started going down, it was hard, especially my work. >> reporter: erika felix, coming home after working illegally for nine years in the united states, hiding in the shadows. >> you're always in fear, you know? >> reporter: a surprising trend so strong, yet often lost in the
about that obama has been hosting to get reasonable republicans and democratic senators talking and to let them do the work, negotiate it and keep as far away from it as he himself, obama, can, so if they strike a deal it doesn't have obama's fingerprints over it and republicans have permission to side with the republicans who negotiated with it, which i guess we're talking about the green lantern theory and power of presidency. the less the president does, the more he has a chance of enacting something. >> i think that's right. to the republican base obama is so toxic so the fact of him supporting anything would rile him up. at the same time i'm skeptical of this idea that republican and democratic congress need to get together. the tea party caucus is so ideological. and they know how washington used to work and they know there were back room deals and camaraderie. they're not interested in that. they're interested in following their own ideals and not allowing government to work. that's where the problem rests. >> if you look at the phrase it implies have you no power. why wo
days. >> wow. that's too much. thanks. let's go now to washington, and president obama in his weekly address today talking about those big sequester cuts and how congress quickly moved to bring furloughed air traffic controllers back on the job. the furloughs by the faa had caused airport delays across this country. well, here's the president's take today. >> this week, the sequester hurt travelers who were stuck for hours in airports and on planes and arightly frustrated by it. and maybe because they fly home each weekend the members of congress who insisted on these cuts finally realized that they actually apply to them, too. >> nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker is at the white house for us. with a good saturday morning to you, kristen. i know the white house has been calling this a band-aid since the senate passed it on thursday night. so, will the president sign it once it hits his desk? >> hey, good morning, alex. and welcome to d.c. always great to have you here. you know, despite calling it a band-aid he is expected to sign this legislation in to law. and it stand
's not a job require. but a sense of humor helps if you are a leader of the free world and we will talk about president obama's performance at the white house correspondents dinner. gps continues right now. >>> we are piecing together how the alleged boston bombers radicalized themselves over the internet and posted their thoughts on twitter. we watched as the internet disseminated their images within a few minutes beginning the sequence of events that led to their capture. is technology a help or hindrance? i have a great person to answer the question. eric schmitt is the executive chairman of google and he has a new book that explores this and other ideas. it is called the new digital age, reshaping the future of people, nations and business. jarrod cohen has worked previously at the state department and as part of the time 100 i should add. thank you, guys. when you watched this boston episode, what did you think about the pow er of technology for the -- the process of self radicalizing on the internet is fascinating where people no longer need a community. they no longer need a leader. th
't know why people don't have faith and -- >> is not a right wing talking point. president obama himself. >> it is not just that obama decided not to do it. what happened was, when he said he would bring him here to manhattan to try the case, congress passed a law that said he could not close guantanamo. he does not have that option available to him. it does not mean it was right. >> we have to it and it. good to have your voice in this debate. thank you. coming up the latest captives held by north korea, 15 years hard label innate labor camp.

with the president tonight. >> as president obama continued to trike to talk up an economic resurgence as the focus of his three-day trip south of border. >> let's do more to expand trade and commerce that creates good jobs. >> some better than expected news north of the border with the labor department reporting the unemployment raid dropped to 7.5%, the lowest level in five years, amid signs more people were finding jobs. in addition to april's gains of 165,000 new jobs, the government revised its february and march numbers upward, by a total of 114,000 jobs. >> we are gaining jobs, over 160,000 new jobs. unemployment has ticked down. that's good news. >> rick: still there were major warning signs the economy is struggling. the manufacturing structure created not a single job. construction employment fell for the first time in a year. the commerce department says manufacturing jobs fell. many are unable to find jobs. >> we need to have more people working, more taxpayers. not raising taxes. we could do it if not for that this drag of the health care law. >> rick: they said it's time toned the se

, for me, was so powerful during the election was the time when obama actually had to come out and talk explicitly about race. because one of the things -- >> he did it here if philadelphia. >> he did it right here in philadelphia. one of the ironies, there's so many ironies in our contemporary political moment, but one of the most powerful ones is the first black president is the one who can talk the least about race. it's the third, fourth and fifth rail for that -- i mean, there's something about race that he knows he can't discuss, and part of what he tried to do in that moment at least was to say let me say something th think is going to bring people together that's forward thinking, and then hopefully i'll never have to bring it up again. and there's something about that, i think, in some ways that is quintessential paranoia. the idea is americans are so fatigued about race, they're so resistant to thinking about racial inclusion that to even bring up the idea of race too often means folks are going to disqualify you from the highest office in the land. you're not going to be a pr

a brief cool down. kim younkim jong-un is cracking. north korea accusing him of act. obama administration demand they immediately release him. you talk about something crazi crazier. for our attention, he has got. >> first, you put words in my mouth, i don't think that dennis rodman is use follow for anything these days, this is where i go ron paul a little bit. i don't think we should have anything to do with north korea, that includes any and all americans, i get you want to help them, you should not go in there for any reason, and u.s. government. only interaction we should have with north korea since the line has been drown in the sand, when we want to kick the crap out of them and take their candy just because we can, do it when we want. call fee old fashion, i am past tolerance for the cabbage patch look alike. >> what do we do? >> well i think barack obama needs to follow-up on his threats, the angry letters are not doing anything, this is a tragedy with the individual people. neil: he is going to keep upping the ante and take more americans who are in the wrong place. the guy was
. the really important thing to remember here we've been talking about justice and i think if the obama administration is going to allow itself to be led by the polls that's putting politics over justice but putting politics over sound policy. every single relevant national security stakeholder in the united states government agrees that closing guantanamo is in the national security interest of the united states and we're still not doing it. that's a clear example. the clearest example i've ever seen of putting politics over sound policy. >> john, your contention that guantanamo was an effort to evade the constitution. we're not talking about dealing with u.s. citizens, though, which is not to say we should deal with citizens of other nations that violate our ethics, but this is not -- these are people who are not entitled to the protection of the constitution, presumably. >> right. that's true. i think maybe -- >> that's very much an open question. that's an issue my students and i litigate day in and day out in federal court. >> doesn't mean they should be treated unethically by any
. >>> we begin with tough talk on syria from president obama. the president responding to new evidence that the syrian government used chemical weapons on its own people. is there enough evidence to act? reen th reena ninan joins usy washington. >> reporter: the president's comments were loaded with caveats. calling the assessment preliminary. one source telling me overnight, will is so much uncertainty, who fired what and at whom. what is the motivation. these are key questions. >> if it is established, that syria was using chemical weapons against their own people, what are the options that the white house has to do? >> reporter: there are no good options, really. military action in syria is something that the white house has wanted to avoid. the focus is on the intelligence picture. we have no public eyewitness accounts of the government firing shels with chemicals at the citizens. the white house is cautious but insisting all options are on the table. >>> new threats from north korea in morning. they say they'll soon put an american on trial for allegedly trying to overthrow that g
a book about these negotiations and did a lot of talking to the republicans. obama reached a deal and obama walked away from it. well, eric cantor, in his interview with ryan lizza of "the new yorker" a couple of months ago basically corrected him. he said, well, i talked to boehner and said it really wouldn't be a good idea to reach a deal now because then the issue evaporates. the president gets the credit, being re-elected. better to keep it alive and fight it out in the -- in the election. >> and it didn't pay off for them, did -- >> it didn't pay off at all. >> except they held the house but it didn't pay off for them in the senate. he lost twathe sat didn't pay off for him in winning the presidency? >> it was a -- call it a riverboat gamble, i suppose you could say. because what cantor said in that interview was -- if we win it all, then we don't have to compromise. they didn't. but the reaction wasn't, all right, now we have to compromise. instead it was, we're still not going to compromise. >> you've said you have some hope for the senate. there is some seeming to have to
victims. >> and steve a lot of people have been talking about the tremendous coordinated government response. governor christie said he thought obama kept his word on that. you are doing this through private donations and private community service. do you think this is an example of hitting the right balance between the public and private response? >> well, we heard about the $50 billion that was going to make it out to the people in the community that the president signed a bill for the relief. it is good to hear about it but better to see it. a lot of our people aren't getting to see that money because the bureaucracy is causing problems for people to get the end result of getting money in their hand to rebuild. >> and you mentioned that some 90% of your members were personally hit by superstorm sandy. out of that you came together to provide relief to your whole community. how has that process of being involved yourself in the relief effort helped with your own sort of personal recovery? >> well, we are called resilient because we have been through so much. we are very close knit
first national television interview? >> you know what this is -- my first talking about myself. when president obama first ran the first time, i was a surrogate for him on some tv shows. this is the first time, yeah. >> good. i want people to look back on this and use this video when you are in your presidential campaign, i don't know, 20 years down the road or when ever that's going to happen. it is my honor to say that linda forry, the history maker in boston gets tonight's last word. thank you, linda. >> thank you, lawrence. >>> friends. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. whose side are you on? the side of terrorists who attacked hundreds of people killing three, wounding dozens and dozens more, or are you on the side of the country you're living in, the country you've come to study in, learn from, become an adult in? on the side of the person identified as the killer or on the side of those he killed and those he deliberately tried to kill. before someone starts singin
